Here are highlights from preseason games of both Ayton and Bagley.

Ayton looked outstanding while Bagley was mediocre, not that you can take much away from a preseason game against inferior competition.  That said, I'd be elated if the Lakers could gift us Ayton.

How is Bruce Brown not on this list? Heís gonna go late lottery but Iím hoping somehow he ends up on the Cís.  He is the PERFECT Marcus Smart replacement.

I've been watching film on Ayton and Bamba for a year now, mostly clips but I did see the complete game of their head to head.  Right now I want Ayton but I also like Bamba a lot.  My preference for those two goes back and forth.  Ayton is a little bigger, seems more dynamic and is more aggressive.  Bamba seems more cerebral.  To me Bamba is a more technical player relying on technique more than physical skill, but he has all physical tools too.  I think Stevens may like that type of player since he has only been drafting high IQ players since the James Young experiment.

Just to stir the pot
I'd like to see Danny draft Bamba and give him #4 to complete the disrespect of IT.   :laugh:

nbadraft.net lists both Al Horford and Al Jefferson as comparison players for Wendell Carter.   ::)
The only thing similar about Horford and Jefferson is the Al. 
Or maybe Wendell can do everything!

Meh, Ayton was being marked by guys a foot shorter, every possession was a mismatch. He did what he had to do well but I wouldn't say outstanding.
Bagley looked like a bag of nerves at the start and messed up quite a bit. Once he'd settled down things went his way. He kept getting into the right positions, moved the ball quick and tried to be aggressive so there are a lot of positives there.
As you say though it's just a preseason game. Numbers in college mean little anyway, it's about the fundamentals that the player can translate to NBA level.

The possibility of getting a top 5 pick this year is slim... I think the Lakers pick will be somewhere around 7-10... hopefully I am wrong

i havenít seen too much of Wendell but I like the horford comparison better than the Jefferson one. Wendell is a good passer

The Lakers are a bad team and one that has no reason to intentionally sit their young guys at any point this season.  They will finish with a bottom 5 record, now whether or not that translates to a pick in the 2-5 range is an entirely different question.

Bruce Brown is likely an end of first round prospect right now.

Are you a relative or friend, since he's from Boston? Not sure who would think he's a lottery candidate. I know I don't. This class is too deep in the top 6 or so and then about 10 other better prospects than Brown. I'll take him at the end of the first though :)
